Protests Happening Across Detroit

0

When friends, family, community members and even complete strangers come together to support each other other and a common cause, they can really make a difference. In this case, the impact is on Black lives. 

If, in recent days you’ve felt called to to speak up and take action for racial justice and the Black Lives Matter movement, Detroit Mom is here to help you find those opportunities. Right here in our local communities, there are protests, marches and demonstrations that YOU can participate in! We believe that together, we can impact change and take a stance against the injustice happening to the Black community.
